Chances are if you’ve found Nourish the Planet, it’s because you’re asking some big questions. Questions like: How do we feed 8 billion people by 2030? How can we heal a broken economic system? How can we live sustainably on a planet with fewer and fewer resources? What can I do about it?
We think there’s a fundamental and elegant answer to these questions – sustainable agriculture. Or more simply put, food. At Nourish the Planet, we are pioneering low-tech, replicable, sustainable methods for all types of food production. Our team is constantly developing new and exciting innovations in the realm of sustainable agriculture. Our two campuses have greenhouses, converted warehouses, pastures, farm fields, urban lots, and other infrastructure that are used to test these new innovations and to improve methods. Our focus is in aquaponics, aquaculture, vermiculture and sustainable ranching; but our larger vision is to produce food in a way that is environmentally nurturing and economically sound.
Indoor, outdoor, large-scale and small, we do it all. In our greenhouse and warehouse spaces, we have marine aquaculture systems and freshwater aquaponic systems that grow delicious, healthy food sustainably. At our ranch, we use rotational grazing patterns to build soil fertility and heal the landscape. We aren’t doing this for fun (although, we have fun doing it), we are doing this because these models of sustainable agriculture are businesses that create jobs and revitalize economies. These tools can help feed a hungry world without depleting our shrinking natural resources. What we do can be done across the entire globe.
We teach by doing, letting our farms and systems act as an example for our community, students and visitors. Let us be your resource, and help us
